Becoming a member of the Enchanté Network will allow your organization to access our network’s supports and to join a vibrant community of 2SLGBTQ+ organizations across Canada.

Member Benefits

With a focus on networking and capacity building, the Enchanté Network connects and supports pride centres and local 2Spirit and LGBTQ+ organizations across Canada.

The many benefits to membership with the Enchanté Network include:

Networking

Our network provides opportunities to connect with other organizations that provide services, programs, and support to the 2Spirit and LGBTQ+ community. 

Capacity Building

We create opportunities to strengthen the knowledge and skills of your staff, board and volunteers.

Amplifying our Members’ Voices

The Enchanté Network acts as a national voice to advocate for our member organizations by engaging with the federal government, key national stakeholders, and funders.

Programmes and Grants

We offer programmes exclusively to our members. These include our mentorship program and $110,000 micro-grants program.

Knowledge Sharing

We keep member organizations up to date with key information on grants, events, learning opportunities relevant to our communities, and more.

Membership Eligibility

Organizations are eligible to apply if they meet all the eligibility criteria below:

  • The organization is comprised of 3 or more people
  • It is located in Canada
  • It is not a business
  • It offers programs and/or services that support the 2SLGBTQ+ community

When reviewing membership applications, we categorize them into two types of applicants; core-mandate applicants and non-core mandate applicants. This is solely for the purpose of admissions, as there is only one tier of membership, which means that both types of applicants have access to the same services and supports from the Enchanté Network team.

Core-mandate applicant
We define core-mandate applicants as organizations or collectives as organizations whose principal mission is supporting 2SLGBTQ+ communities.
Non-core mandate applicant

We define non-core mandate applicants as incorporated organizations whose principal mission is not limited to supporting the 2SLGBTQ+ communities, but offers programs, services and/or activities specifically aimed to supports 2SLGBTQ+ communities (ex: a community health clinic offering trans-inclusive healthcare).
